Event description

Description

The City of Lancaster is the owner of this unmarked property along N Conestoga Ave that is directly north of 145 N Conestoga Drive. The site is situated next to the Conestoga River and all of the existing grass area is within the 100-year floodplain. Turf grass is not an ideal use for floodplain, but it presents an excellent opportunity for reforestation, riparian maintenance and meadow planting!

Please join the Tree Tenders and the City of Lancaster as they partner to restore the riparian buffer on this site to improve habitat and water waulity in the Conestoga River. Penn State's Agriculture & Environment Center and Donegal Trout Unlimited have generously pledged a total of 200 trees and shrubs. We will also remove some invasive species and help establish a meadow area.

Parking is very limited and will be provided at 145 N Conestoga Drive, which is nextdoor to the planting area. Please carpool, walk, or ride your bike.

RSVP is required to participate and a volunteer waiver must be signed when you arrive.

ALL VOLUNTEERS SHOULD BRING BOOTS, WATER, GLOVES, AND A SHOVEL. We will have extra shovels on hand if needed. Kids are welcome, but the activities are best suited for 12+. Anyone under 18 should be accompanied by a guardian.

Rain or shine!
